Red Rocks Reflections, October 2017

Dear Red Rocks Community:

In honor of our Colorado Rockies, October is the “heart of the batting order” for the school year. Our parent/teacher conferences crescendo next week and your partnership with our teachers is vital for student achievement. Thank you for taking the time to meet with us.

For our 5th and 6th grade families, we are pleased to provide a follow-up to our “Strengthsfinder” work. This month each 5th and 6th grade student will get the chance to take a “Gallup Student Poll.” This tool fits with our outlook of “growth mindset” and gives adults a tool to engage kids about their future positively. The district made this possible, so a big “thank you” to Dr. Glass and his team. Look for a letter from your teachers for details and parent permission slips.

In closing, our world has seen an increase in tragedies on a scale and frequency that was unthinkable a generation ago. I’m grateful that families actively filter media which can have such a negative impact on children. More than ever, schools are asked to serve as community hubs. On behalf of our teachers and staff we thank you for making Red Rocks a positive place where kids can grow and learn.  We’ve provided a resource from the National Association of School Psychologists attached to this communication that I thought contained helpful reminders for conversations with my own kids.

Let’s enjoy October as a beautiful gift. It’s a great time be a Red Rocks Raccoon!

--Mr. Isaac
